Three "former chorus girls" team up to capture rich husbands. But they spend as much time fighting with each other as they do the men they try to snare. This film is based on a a play by Zoe Akins "The Greeks Had A Word For It" which is also the basis for the softer and more genteel 50s version "How To Mary A Millionaire". Stars Joan Blondell.
